View: Jed Wallace ideal player to lead West Brom back to Premier League

West Brom have been heavily linked with a move for former Millwall winger Jed Wallace, as per the Express & Star.

The Baggies have been in the market to sign an attacking player and as per the report, they are likely to make a move for the 28-year-old, who is now a free agent.

The former Wolves winger is very highly-rated in the football community and Millwall’s manager Gary Rowett was also full of praise talking about his ex-star player.

“He’s [Wallace] a top-quality Championship player who, I know, can play at different levels of the game,” said Rowett as by Express & Star.

“He’ll have options. The chances are he might not be here next season. He’s been fabulous for me. He has got Premier League quality.”

Great business

Signing a player like Wallace will be a step in the right direction for both Steve Bruce and West Brom as he ticks a lot of boxes.

The Baggies struggled immensely in the attacking department during the recently concluded campaign where they failed in a bid to get promoted.

The side only managed to score 52 goals in 46 matches in the league campaign, joint seventh-lowest out of all the 24 teams participating in the division.

Therefore, making a move for a player like Wallace, who not only scored six goals but also provided 12 assists, three more than any player from West Brom in the league, makes him an ideal fit for the club.

To top that, the former Portsmouth winger will be available as a free agent as his contract with the current club is coming to an end in the summer.

Wallace will be leaving Millwall after making 229 appearances across all competitions where he scored 37 goals and provided 40 assists.
